18:30 - Marcel Hubregtse Incredible that a band that can be totally out there when they want too (bordering on avantgarde) also records stuff which is incredibly generic (looking at all the MV albums)
18:28 - Apothecary "Both being very different on an Artistic plan." Well no shit lol, I probably won't even bother with another Memoria Vetusta album, but that other one sounds intriguing
